Hi I'm Adam Finch

I grew up in Iowa. I enjoy singing. I'm an intramural champion. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Adam. I have lived in Iowa my entire life, and love the people and culture there. Growing up, I tried to stay involved: in high school I participated in a variety of activities and groups. These activities included student council, active participation in the vocal music program at my school, and intramural sports. These activities helped me to meet a lot of people and appreciate the value of a well rounded life.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, quite simply, because I know that it is true. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior, and that this church is the fulness of His restored gospel. I have read the Book of Mormon, and felt the power of its' message. Although sometimes living a Christlike life can be daunting, and I am certainly nowhere near perfect, I can see improvements in my own character as I honestly strive to be like Him. This testimony is still growing, and I hope to continue to cultivate this growth over the course of my life. I know that anyone struggling in life can turn to Jesus Christ, because He truly does know how to overcome the trials of this world. Similarly, anyone can come to know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is His church restored on the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through simple every day efforts to become a better, more Christlike person. Serving others is something that everyone can do on a daily basis -- all it takes is a warm smile, a compliment, or opening the door for a stranger. The essence of my faith is to become like Jesus Christ, and I do this by learning about His life and ministry, applying these concepts to my life, and developing Christlike habits that become part of my character. Part of my church service involves "Home Teaching" where I visit the homes of two families monthly to check in on them and serve them in any way I can. This is more than a monthly obligation, it is a friendship that I have developed over the years. These are just a few of the ways I try to live my faith.
